The EVP Care team is a nurse practitioner led inpatient geriatric consult service developed to improve the care of older hospitalized veterans by increasing access to geriatric focused care and empowering nurses to identify risk early and employ patient-centered interventions that focus on preventing hospital acquired functional decline and associated complications. A team of nurses and nurse practitioners meet with at risk inpatient older adults and perform geriatric assessments that focus on optimizing veteran-centered nursing interventions. Additionally the nurse practitioners will see inpatients with active geriatric issues and work with the inpatient medical/surgical teams to optimize inpatient care of older at risk veterans and assist with disposition when warranted.
